I am a postdoctoral researcher exploring microbial and invertebrate communities at the University of Idaho. In collaboration with Dr. Strickland, we are examining a variety of topics, from herbivore/plant/microbial interactions to the ecological impacts of agricultural antibiotic use. Through my research I hope to shed light on what factors drive community structure in belowground environments. Ultimately, I strive to understand how these incredibly diverse communities influence the health and function of ecosystems and the organisms that inhabit them.
